Bassariscus astutus

  • Actually related to raccoons, the ringtail or "miners cat" was kept by American settlers and prospectors as a pet and mouser.
  • With a long tail for balance, and hind feet that can turn backwards, ringtails climb rocky ledges, trees and deep crevices with ease.
  • As omnivores, they will eat seeds, nuts, fruits, berries, insects, snakes, toads, lizards, mice, birds, squirrels and even rabbits.

  •  

    Although skilled at avoiding predators, ringtails will scream, bristle their tails, and discharge a repellant scent when threatened.
